Green water is an algae bloom. Is your tank getting direct sunlight from a window? How long do you leave the lights on each day? This might help:

Scroll down to the section on "Green Water."

Unfortunately the tank is in front of a window. lights are on roughly about 8 hours. I may end up rearranging the room to get the tank from in front of the window.

If possible Could I buy a film for the back of the tank?
To block out the sunlight

Just wanted to say thanks for the advice. After putting up a blackout curtain behind the tank. it is starting to clear up some. I also ordered the blackout film and am planning on putting that up also. I am still rearranging the upstairs in my head before I move the tank. But the move will take place.
